What is Laser Therapy?

Low level laser therapy (LLLT) can effectively block pain message signals so reducing pain, improve healing time, increase circulation and decrease swelling.

LLLT stimulates the body’s cellular response to damage. In soft tissue injures, it increases the production of cells such as macrophages, fibroblasts and mast cells which then accelerates tissue repair and improves chronic conditions.

There are many conditions that laser therapy can be used to alleviate. It has anti-inflammatory, pain relieving and increased healing properties. It is non-invasive and drug free and is easily tolerated by patients.

The results are reducing inflammation in joints, relief of pain, swelling and stiffness and increased mobility.

Therapeutic lasers can be used on their own, in conjunction with conventional medicine, when conventional methods have drawn a blank or where the use of drugs present a problem.

Conditions that benefit from Laser Therapy

Reduces pain and increases mobility in arthritic dogs and dogs that suffer from hip or elbow dysplasia, increases healing time in soft tissue injuries, such as sprains and strains.

Course of Treatment

Treatments vary case to case but normally, cases are seen twice a week for the first 2 weeks, then weekly for 2 weeks, then fortnightly for 2 weeks, then a maintenance monthly visit.

Veterinary referral is necessary. The treatment will be carried out in the comfort of your own home, though if your pet is having therapy at Roundstone Hydrotherapy Centre in Angmering, then I can carry out the treatment there, at the end of their session, if that is convenient for you. 

All appointments are from £25. 


Testimonials

As dogs age, many develop painful joints that limit the enjoyment of their senior years. Laser Therapy can help ease thier discomfort and improve their mobility.

Pippin, a spanial

Pippin’s Story

“By the age of five, all four feet showed distinctive signs of degenerative arthritis, as his poor paws became increasingly ‘nobbly’ and swollen – but he never stopped running, nor did his tail stop wagging. By this time he was on regular pain relief and Yumove, in the hope that these would give him some relief. He also had regular Hydrotherapy, which although helpful, was obviously not enough to deal with the condition alone…..At this point, our vet suggested Laser treatment would be a good option, as there had been favourable success reports in this field…
Pippin had regular sessions of Laser treatment, and it become clear, after several sessions, that the swelling in his paws was reduced…The continuation of Laser treatment throughout, in conjunction with Jacuzzi, and Hydrotherapy, without doubt maintained Pippin’s ability to continue being relatively active….” Sandra

Maisie’s Story

“Maisie came to us as a rescue, originally brought over from Portugal with both hips having been smashed in a car accident….Then her arthritis became more of a problem and her vet suggested I try laser treatment for her….
Maisie has a dog buggy so after the treatment I rested her in it to take her to her favourite place for a short walk – she enjoyed her walk, ignored the buggy and walked home! Over the next months we had a few off days (normally just before treatment was due) but she was much steadier on her feet and walking on all four feet, enjoying her sniffs both in the garden and on her walks. She even managed the occasional jump for food which she hadn’t done for over a year.
I feel the laser treatment really improved her quality of life and when she finally left us aged nearly 18 years I knew she had been able to enjoy the latter years to the full after going through so much earlier on.” Coral
